fresh air

Hot. Humid. Ugh.
At least it’s not 111 degrees, which it is in Phoenix, where Randi Rhodes blows fresh into the air waves on Air America Radio.
According to Rhodes:
As I walked out of the Barry Goldwater Memorial Terminal (seriously) at Sky Harbor Airport, I couldn’t help but think about how many so-called Goldwater-Conservatives actually STILL believe that Sen. Goldwater and the Bushies are cut from the same cloth.
In fact, it was this 1964 Goldwater quote that came to mind:
I’m frankly sick and tired of the political preachers across this country telling me as a citizen that if I want to be a moral person, I must believe in A, B, C, and D. Just who do they think they are? And from where do they presume to claim the right to dictate their moral beliefs to me?
Terri Schiavo, stem-cells, corporatist judges, purposefully lying “journalists,” Downing Street Memos, etc, etc, etc. ENOUGH! Regardless of your party affiliation, how much more are you going to take?! And more importantly, how much more can we afford to take?

I dreamed last night that I went to see my former therapist, and when I stood in front of him, I was so overwhelmed that I couldn’t even articulate what I was coming to see him about. And then the room was full of people getting in my way, and I left.
I’m packing for two. Move of big stuff is scheduled for July 14.
Hot. Sweaty. Tired. Need some fresh air.

  1. Elaine, July 14 is Bastille Day. Good sign! I, for one, will be holding you in my thoughts. And, yes, Old Horsetail might be right about that!
